Mohammedan myth

MEET BEN SHAPIRO, a conservative Jew, both religiously and politically. He’s one of my favorite fellows, a political activist, pundit and writer for the Right Side.

He’s the Honcho of the online news site, Truth Revolt, which is an arm of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, a conservative think tank.

Shapiro is young, fearless and incredibly articulate. Now and then, he inexplicably is invited to speak at an elite university, and much of the student body and faculty, whom Shapiro refers to as “snowflakes,”  go stark, raving insane.

They throw things. They scream. They holler. They toss red paint to represent blood. They foam at the mouth.

They heave their plushy bears out of their playpens.

And Shapiro, unfazed, keeps on speaking through it all.

This common reaction on campuses today highlights the hilarious irony of the left’s referring to Donald Trump as dangerous, a man who incites violence.

The left-wing Democrat Party is all about violence, either verbal or both physical and verbal.

True, Trump increasingly says that pushing back is justified, and he is correct. The Jews of 1930s Europe did not push back, and remember how that ended for them.

The increasing political violence in the United States began on the left, and it’s growing daily. It’s the left that abhors free speech, not the conservatives. It’s the left that shouts down contrary opinions, not the conservatives.

Were Bill Ayers to be invited to speak at one of the very few conservative campuses, he would be listened to politely or, more likely, he would be ignored.

He would not be physically threatened or even bellowed at because conservatives are polite people.

Today, Shapiro is addressing the myth that most Mohammedans are peaceful or — more correctly — that most do not harbor radical, violent attitudes.

While it is true that most do not actually murder “the infidels” or even stone women of their own religion, most do think it’s a real swell idea much of the time.

Getting it right

OLE FELIPE is a conservative of the non-church variety, primarily a libertarian.

When I vote in U.S. elections (from afar), I vote Republican not because I much care for the Republican Party. I decidedly do not. They get too hung up on religious matters when other issues are far more pressing. No, I vote GOP because it’s the not-Democrat party, the only viable alternative.

Most of my life, I voted Democrat, so I am a recovering lefty. No, that’s incorrect. I am fully recovered.

It’s trendy in some circles to say there’s not much difference between the GOP and Democrats these days. This is silly. If you think the United States would be the same today had McCain won in 2008 or Romney in 2012 as the America over which Barry runs riot, you are quite in error.

Polarization is at a fever pitch. If get your news (and most Americans don’t get news from anywhere) from The New York Times, HuffPost, Slate, Mother Jones, NPR, etc., you have one viewpoint, a wrong one, in my opinion.

If, however, you get your news from the same places I get mine, you will be well informed.

As a public service, here they are:

1. The Washington Times.

2. Breitbart (my personal favorite).

3. Fox online (not as good as the most-watched TV news network).

4. Truth Revolt (Ben Shapiro, one sharp, young Jew).

5. Townhall.

6. Free Beacon.

7. The Federalist.

8. Independent Journal Review.

9. The Daily Caller.

10. The Blaze.

Due to the nonsense emanating from Barry’s White House, plus the shameless collectivist cheerleading done by the corrupt, mainstream media, new conservative news sources are popping up all over, a great thing.

Remember: The best government is the government that leaves you alone most of the time.

You tell ’em, Ben

I AM A FAN of Israel.

Low-information, left-wing students (a redundancy) at elitist universities now wear the rancid mantle of anti-Semitism, much as Nazi Brown Shirts once did in Germany.

The students only need a 21st century Ernst Röhm to get them organized, armed and decked out in colorful uniforms.

It’s heartening to see a pack of these people get a good shellacking, which they did receive at a recent meeting of the UCLA Undergraduate Students Association Council.

The council met to consider a resolution calling on the university to divest from businesses that “profit from the Israeli occupation of Gaza and the West Bank.”

ShapiroBen Shapiro, a UCLA grad himself, only 30 years old and a talk-show host, showed up unannounced at the council meeting and said this:

My name is Ben Shapiro. I’m an alumnus of this university I’m also a local talk show host on 870 in the morning, and I got out of bed and left my one-month-old baby there when I saw what was going on here tonight. I’ve never been more ashamed to be a Bruin. I’ve never been more ashamed to be an alumnus of this university than to see this divestment petition being considered at this level.

To pretend this is about occupation, to pretend this is about peace, to pretend that this is anything other than vile, spiteful Jew hatred is a lie!

There is only one reason we are discussing Israel and not discussing Saudi Arabia. There is only one reason we are discussing Israel and not discussing Iran. There is only one reason we are discussing Israel and not discussing Palestine. There is only one reason we are discussing Israel and not discussing the vast bevy of human rights violations that happen every day in the Middle East, exponentially worse that what happens in Israel.

Any gay or lesbian that is targeting Israel in this room seems to have forgotten how high they hang gays from cranes in Iran. Every person of liberal bent who suggests that Israel is the problem in the Middle East seems to have forgotten that there is only one country in the Middle East that actually has any sort of religious diversity in it. The countries that are apartheid countries are those that are Judenrein (free of Jews) – like, for example, Palestine.

So, for us to sit here and pretend that Israel is somehow on a lower moral plane is a direct manifestation of anti-Semitism. And to hold Jews to a different moral standard than any other country or group on the face of the earth represents nothing but an age-old and historic hatred for the Jewish people. All the folks here who are pretending that the B.D.S is about anything other than that – I would like to see a poll of those folks, and see how many of them actually believe in the existence of a Jewish state, qua-Jewish state, not as a state like any other, but as a Jewish state. They don’t. They don’t acknowledge that existence. They don’t believe in that existence. They don’t believe in peace. All this is about, pure and simple, is a desire to target the Jewish people.

The resolution was defeated, 7-5, after a debate that lasted almost 12 hours, a vote the council cowardly decided to cast by secret ballot.

But their fear is justified. Pushing back at the collectivists can leave you injured — physically, occupationally and socially or all three simultaneously.

It’s Israeli Apartheid Week, an annual event in which clueless, leftist, university-aged adolescents demonize the only open society in the Middle East.
